Great photos and RR! Hope the jacket is working for you! Sorry the pants are to long.

Nice pictorial! I have a friend riding over there right now. That Honda Rune and cafe racer were put to the test, I take it they didn't need to cross the water at all?

Thanks Randy.
Yeah, the jacket is okay.
Pants are no use. Sounds no chance to sell in Vietnam as there is no such big rider around here.

Sure your friends will have lots of unforgettable moments.
The Rune and CB1K were pretty well handled, much better than expected.
They were sleeping at other place as me so they did not need to cross the stream. Lucky them.

Got up quite early the next day - we rode all the way from Dalat to Nha Trang, to attend the 2nd wedding:



Weather was pretty strange to us, who live in HCMC. It was around 13-15degC. My jacket seems really fit with that temp.
Dalat is a highland at the Western side of Vietnam. Nha Trang is a seaside city, on the East side. Distance is just about 100miles. The connecting road was great, with lots of twisties.

Waited for the gang:



Here's how they showed up:

Thank you Sir. It sounds a culture here in Vietnam - any important event of motorcycle buddies are supported by the whole team, especially wedding.

We stopped at the memorial place where people pay respect to some workers who had lost their lives while making this road:











Hohoo, see the photo of mine, taken by a buddy:
